Speak Out

The Marshall Democrat-News invites readers to share their views and questions on any issue. Open discussions are often useful and enlightening.

I totally agree. We should focus on local stuff on the regular speak out forum.

Local issues like the FBI investigating the local police.

Our former sheriff Wally George plead guilty to grand theft likely as part of a plea agreement to avoid public knowledge of and or prosecution for other crimes he committed. And there is an ongoing FBI investigation to find out if our local cops are: a) so freakin stupid they couldn't tell that Newell's and Obryan's lies didn't match the video tape or b) so freaking corrupt that they knew it was bullchips and went along with the frame job they put on mr. Rottgen anyway.

Btw folks, after receiving A COUPLE MONTHS PAID VACATION those two liars Newell and Obryan are back at work shoulder to shoulder with the other cops that covered their behinds inspite of obvious video evidence that they were lying.

The fact that, given the crimes committed and the eventualities of Wally George getting a pass, the fairytale twins getting rewarded with paid vacation and nobody in the local PD being charged with or sanctioned for any wrong doing what so ever should definitely be bigger news than it is.

Unless Marshall/saline co residents are just so accustomed to the police being corrupt, lying, thieving scum that it has become common place like talking about the weather.

However, I will respect the wishes of those in the community who would prefer the main speakout be used for commentary on local issues.

I will take my politics to the political speakout.

I hope that helps mate!
